Azalea – Even a few leaves can cause vomiting, diarrhea, coma and death

Daffodil – Bulbs, plant or flower, can cause severe vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal paindogwithplants

Dieffenbachia – Popular in homes & offices, this plant can cause intense oral irritation, nausea and difficulty swallowing

Hyacinth / Tulip – If ingested in large amounts, these flowers can cause severe vomiting, diarrhea and increased heart rate

Lily – Tiger, Day, Asiatic, Easter & Japanese lilies are highly toxic to cats and can cause severe kidney failure

Oleander – This is extremely toxic and can cause severe vomiting, slowing of the heart rate and possibly death
